On Tuesday, April 12, 2016 HIAS hosted a briefing call to update our supporters on the global response to the refugee crisis. You can listen at the link below.

On the call, HIAS CEO and President Mark Hetfield and others discussed the critical need for U.S. and international leadership to provide for the protection of a fast-expanding refugee population, as well as some of the initiatives and proposals that are helping and harming refugees seeking safety in Europe and around the world.

Also discussed were many ways to be involved with the Jewish response to the refugee crisis, including the launch of our Passover materials, a special education campaign co-sponsored by Repair the World, and our new initiative for synagogues, the Welcome Campaign.
